As far as the Japanese disks are concerned - If they do not deviate too far from the standard, they should back up into .BIN/.CUE files just fine regardless of what platform you use to read them. (After all, the box doesn't even have to _understand_ the bits, just copy them). Whether you could _use_ them without having Japanese windows installed in another matter entirely.

In a nutshell, this approach looks good, and should work fine with any disk which can be copied by a normal, stand alone CD copier.

As far as the artwork, you might want to consider making a Jpeg2000 version in lossless mode for those who want the whole, high quality version. The compression ratio is pretty good and there are decoders which can be downloaded for free. This should give everyone most of what they want.
